ISLAMABAD: The Supreme Court on Friday fixed the date for the hearing of a suo motu case on the sit-in staged by the Tehreek-e-Labbaik Pakistan (TLP) at Faizabad Interchange in 2017.
A two-judge bench headed by Justice Mushir Alam and comprising Justice Qazi Faez Isa will resume hearing the suo motu case on November 16.
The apex court has summoned the record of TLP's registration as a political party from the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP).
Notices have also been sent to the attorney general, secretaries of interior and defence, Islamabad inspector general of police (IGP) and the Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority (PEMRA) in this regard.
Last year in November, the top court had taken suo motu notice of the sit-in staged by TLP leaders and activists at the Faizabad Interchange.
The three-week long sit-in, which had paralysed the federal capital, was called off on November 27 after protesters reached an agreement with the government.
